Artist Carl Stoveland with his Best in Show Photograph 

 

 

“It was a once in a lifetime experience… even now,  eighteen months later I am still finding images from that trip to edit!”  

Carl Stoveland

 

 

TRR:   Give us a peek into your experience in the Dry Tortugas.

CS:

The Artist in Residence program at Dry Tortugas National Park is run by the National Parks Art Foundation and the NPS.  It is one of the most extreme residencies out there.  The residency requires two people for safety reasons due to the isolated and remote location of the residency.  Held on Loggerhead Key, an uninhabited island a mere 49 acres in size,  3 miles from Fort Jefferson in the Dry Tortugas 70 miles west of Key West and about 90 miles North of Cuba.
In 2020, fine artist painter Shannon Torrence and I were fortunate enough to be selected as the Artists in Residence (AIRs).  We had applied for slots in 2019 and were finalists but ultimately not selected.  We started planning our application for 2020 the next day.  We built a podcast with guests speaking about art and art residencies,  We created a blog and a social media presence, including a movie trailer for our project we called the “Flying Tortuga Brothers”.  Ultimately we were selected for 2020!  When September arrived and we had gathered all of our gear and food for the month in Key West, we were ferried to Fort Jefferson on the Yankee Freedom to Fort Jefferson on Garden Key. 

 

 

 

 

“The old kitchen house and cistern, Loggerhead Key”
Infrared B&W Photograph by Carl Stoveland

 

 

 

 

That is as far as most tourists ever get as there is no access to Loggerhead Key except by kayak – a 6 mile round trip. There were a few hearty souls who did that during our month, but I think I can count on one hand the number of folks we saw who did that.  Larger boats can tie off to one of two mooring balls and use a dinghy to land on Loggerhead Key.  Over the month we saw perhaps 10 people visit for part of a day.  Once at Fort Jefferson we were taken by a small NPS boat with our gear to Loggerhead Key.  We lived in the old lighthouse keepers house.  The only other house on the island is the old Kitchen house and an intern for the NPS studying the turtles was there.  The lighthouse (its supporting garage and shed) and the two buildings are the only structures on the entire island.  It was rustic with a “capitol R”.  “Desolate” is probably the better word.  The island is stark and beautiful.  The lighthouse was decommissioned in 1997 and that is when the Coastguard turned the island over to the park service.

 

 

 

We had to be self sufficient for the entire month.  There were no runs to the shops for more food, etc.  There was no fresh water so maintaining and operating the desalination plant became a big part of daily life along with monitoring power usage and the batteries in the solar system (as that is needed  for the desalination plant to make the fresh water).  Most days were in the mid 90’s.  I lost 20lbs in the month I was there from all the exercise  ( he says with a smiling emoji). Shannon produced a breathtaking series of small paintings during the month that are fueling his larger works to this day.  I was enchanted by the night sky.  The Dry Tortugas has almost no light pollution so the stars are brilliant.  If you spend a few minute out after dark to let your eyes adjust you can see the Milky Way with the naked eye!  I was like a kid in a candy store photographing the old lighthouse against a backdrop of stars like diamonds hanging in the sky.  My days were spent photographing the water and the emptiness of the island.

 

 

 

Artist Carl Stoveland in Dry Tortugas National Park

 

 

 

I have enough for a full blown exhibit if any galleries want to host a show.  The only piece printed and seen in public (outside of social media of course) is a night scene of the light house with a sky that was lit by lightning and part of the star-filled sky.  It took Best in Show at the “Florida Showcase 2022” at the Box Gallery in West Palm which is running until August 27th.  The residency was a profound experience.

 

 

 

As artist in residence at Dry Tortugas National Park (September 2020) Carl’s goals as an artist became distilled and clarified.  He says, “The shear beauty of the ocean and the night could be overwhelming.  It was there that I realized I needed to use my art as an advocate for protecting our natural environment and making people aware of what we risk losing if these places are lost to over development.  I do this by focusing on a location and showing its beauty through my art”.

 

 

“The experience on Dry Tortugas was life changing for me as an artist…. I questioned whether I could say what I want through the lens”.  ~ Carl Stoveland

 

“This lead to a near-constant exploration of other media.  After working my way through acrylic, gouache, Casein and oil painting I have settled on Oils as my favored medium to paint in for personal work along with my old favorite Watercolor”. ~ Carl Stoveland

TRR:  What is your creative background?

CS:

 

I grew up in NY near the Catskill Mountains and found my passion for photography hiking along the many trails and streams near my home.  My Dad spent his entire career working in photo labs and my Mom is an oil painter and watercolorist.  (So the apple did not fall far from the tree in this case).  My current passions include a variety of photo and painting media along with teaching  and urban sketching.

 

Carl tells The Rickie Report, “In the language of photography there is a wide angle view and a close up macro view to seeing the world.  I believe it is the same for the life and work of all artists.  The close up macro view speaks to the drive to work every day to improve in their craft and expand the tools they have to interact with the world.  After 35 years as a photographer I reached a certain level of expertise.  Still I am constantly working to find new ways to tell stories.  This has led explorations in various other media including film, audio, podcasting painting and digital art.  We are all both students and masters at the same time.  This is my daily closeup view”.

 

 

“From the standpoint of the wide angle view a mature artist with skills honed over years of hard work yearns for more than just technical proficiency, Carl explains.  They look to the world at large and desire to use their work to have a bigger impact on viewers.  Artists are obligated to use their skills to make people think about bigger issues.  This can be accomplished by creating beautiful work or disturbing/unsettling work.  It requires that a strong point of view be what drives the creation of the art”.

 

 

 

TRR:  How did moving to Lake Worth, FL change your perspective ?

CS:

 

 

When I arrived in Florida in 2016 I was struck by the nature of my adopted town of Lake Worth.  I found people doing projects everywhere, people helping each other and a town that like no other loves to throw a parade.  I set out to capture the people that make this a special place and ask each of them why they think it is special.  The result after two years of shooting were the IAMLAKEWORTH and IAM LAKEWORTHTOO exhibits held at the Hatch in Lake Worth.  It was a great experience and a wonderful way to become one of those fabulous Lake Worthians I admire so much.

 

 

 

I AM LAKE WORTH Exhibit by Carl Stoveland at Hatch 1121 Lake Worth Beach, FL

 

 

“After returning in October 2020 Covid was everywhere and decided to throw myself into accomplishing more paintings.  In the 18 or so months since, I have charged headlong into painting  – adding oils, acrylics, gouache and casein to the watercolors I was already doing”.   ~ Carl Stoveland

 

 

 

TRR:  Please tell us more about your classes At Mounts Botanical Garden and Venue 1201.

CS:

 

 

I spent the remainder of 2020 and 2021 (during covid) in my home studio exploring media and styles.  That left me with a nagging question of what can I do with my art for good.  It was then I decided to look for teaching opportunities.  Mounts Botanical Garden had an opening for a watercolor teacher and found that it was the missing piece of the puzzle!  I love teach almost as much as I like making art.  When it clicks for a student and they have an “A-HA moment” is thrilling to me.

 

 

 

I replenish my creative energies when I teach watercolor at Mounts Botanical Garden on Tuesdays from 10am to 12:30pm.  Class starts with a walk in the garden, a quick demo, and then the students work on what they choose with me wandering the room offering assistance. I am there to enhance their experience, not put my touch on their painting style.  Class is open to all levels.  Signup on the events page of the Mounts website.  Mounts.org  For absolute beginners I also have a starter class with weekly lessons and projects designed to get you up and running as a watercolorist.  CLASS IS FROM 10AM TO 12PM  at Venue 1201 in Lake Worth.  Contact me to sign up (cstoveland@icloud.com)

TRR:  What does Palm Beach Urban Sketchers offer?

CS:  

 

I am part of the Palm Beach Urban Sketcher group (that is part of the worldwide urban sketching movement https://urbansketchers.org)  Our local group can be found on FaceBook at the Palm Beach Urban Sketcher Group.  It’s an informal group of sketchers who meet up weekly to sketch together at different locations around Palm Beach County.  There is no cost involved (unless the venue we are sketching at has an entrance fee).  Every week we pick a new place to sketch and get word out to the group through FaceBook and an email group.  To be added to the email group simply email me and I’ll be happy to add you.  Whether you are a working artist, like to draw or just think it might be a fun thing to do it is great.  Drawing from life on location over the past year or so has vastly improved all of my art practices.

F R E E       T I C K E T S:

Tal Danino, whose research and work explores the emerging field of synthetic biology, focusing on engineering bacteria gene circuits to create novel behaviors that have biomedical applications.  The interaction of microbes and tumors is a major target of his work, where DNA sequences and synthetic biology approaches are used to program bacteria as diagnostics and therapeutics in cancer. Danino also brings this science outside the laboratory as a TED Fellow and through various science-art projects.

Danino creates visual art involving bacteria and cells and encompassing various themes, often exploring the relationship of humans to microorganisms. His works have gained significant attention and have been featured in the New York Times, The Atlantic, and Wired magazine. He has collaborated with artists such as Vik Muniz in the Colonies series, where he developed a photolithography based printing process to create intricate patterns out of both bacterial and cancer cells. Also in collaboration with Vik Muniz and created by Bernardaud was the Petri collection, a set of porcelain dinner plates depicting pathogenic bacteria.Tal has worked with other artists such as Anicka Yi, exploring concepts of biological identity. In Microuniverse, he used artistic processes such as silk screening to display a variety of petri-dish grown bacterial colonies on different color backgrounds to show their wide range of growth morphologies, from rings to fractals.

Juan Bernal, BA. in Architecture Universidad Javeriana, Bogota, Colombia 1976
“My work is about the beauty of Nature and importance of simple things; elements of nature that we usually take for granted, and whose beauty we don’t take time to observe, like a fragment of a leaf, a flower, or the way light is reflected as it strikes a drop of dew. These themes are recreated making emphasis in the geometry of nature’s designs. It is the complexity within the simplicity. The work constitutes an alarm to us all to preserve the environment that we are part of and we are relentlessly destroying, and without which we could not survive…..

Rolando Chang Barrero has established himself as a cultural art leader, founding the Boynton Beach Arts District, co-founder of Art Synergy, the Florida Arts Association, host and founder of Hola Palm Beach the first bilingual art and culture television show in the area. He is the recipient of the Congressional Letter of Commendation and Proclamation for Cultural Leadership.  He serves as curator of The Box Gallery and Compass having received the Best Gallery of 2018 award from the South Florida Gay News.  In the past he has served as Curator/Director of several galleries and currently curates at the Box Gallery in West Palm Beach.  Rolando was recently named as a MUSE Award recipient from the Cultural Council Of Palm Beach County, a prestigious recognition.

Introduction by Andrea Iaroc:

In her essay,“Contemporary Issues by Conceptualism”by Andrea Iaroc, she states, ” Art needs a concept in order to exist. By definition, a concept is an abstract idea, a general notion, a plan or intention — a conception. Now, how well defined that concept is and the concern within it (e.g. sociopolitical commentary), and depending on the art piece’s placement in history, it may be considered ‘Conceptual Art’ or belong to one of the 30+ art movements in art history.

 

In contemporary art spaces, it is common to hear “is it art?” in reference to Conceptual Art. Instead, I propose we ask: How is the artist trying to communicate their ideas through what we experience visually, olfactory, tactilely, or even through sound and taste? Looking past the aesthetics of art requires a discerning eye and a curious mind. This means that as audiences, we should open our minds to what Conceptual Art offers us and enter into these conversations to transcend our ideas of what art is supposed to deal with and look like.

 

A concern with environmental issues and understanding of wildlife’s importance in our lives is fundamental part of Diane Arrieta’s body of work. She has a BFA in Ceramic Sculpture from Florida Atlantic University and a MSC in Wildlife Health from the University of Edinburgh. These two disciplines are smoothly syncretized in her work, although she uses a variety of media apart from ceramics. In observing her work, Sentinel, it is difficult to miss the references to the Disney version of Snow White, a coming-of-age tale first documented by Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm in 1812. In this particular work a meerkat stands guard next to the young girl, begging the thought of switching their roles: Our future planet in the hands of our young. In our current sociocultural moment of awakening, it is quite fitting that the sculpture is a girl.

 

 

Feminism, like any ideology and movement, exists in a spectrum. What was acceptable or unacceptable to second-wave feminists is not acceptable or acceptable to fourth-wave feminists, but a constant remains true: the acknowledgement of female bodies, personhoods, and identities as fully human – with rights and opportunities for all. Linda Behar goes beyond the trappings of the present and gives us tools to forge a better future through her varied artistic practice. She captures womanhood without the boundaries imposed by society, be it body shape, comportment, or any other conventions given to that role. Conventions that are also challenged by Sibel Kocabaşi in her work, as well as pressing issues of violence against women, global effects of war and migration, and environmental consciousness.

 

 

History without revisions has a lot to teach, if only proper attention is given. And yet events that should redefine our ways, are collectively forgotten and mistakes are made again – impermanent lessons. Impermanence is one of the concepts that underscore Giannina Coppiano Dwin’s work by using ephemeral materials. Her practice in general touches upon socio-cultural issues and in this particular exhibit, the #MeToo movement. At this point in history we have to reckon with the fact that women are simply not believed when reporting sexual assault, violence, and abuse of power. Yet Arrieta, Behar, Kocabaşi, and Dwin not only represent feminine power and truth channeled through their work, they assert it in all its Mother Gaia greatness for everyone to see, feel, and act upon. Policy changes and societal attitudes need to change in order to actively move the current system forward.

 

 

In a world of faulty systems, denialism, paranoid conspiracies, and extreme polarities, the need to create bridges of understanding and compassion is urgent. Technology has been a key factor in these divisions but it is also the key to repair that rupture. It can help people recognize the importance of understanding climate change and its connection to increasing natural disasters, smart usage of green technology to provide alternative energy sources, and sustainable living. These ideas are hard to ignore when looking at Rick Newton’s work from the jump. Remnants of the Florida we know teem with technologically advanced structures and devices, yet crab claws seem to reign supreme over a post-apocalyptic world that signals the end of the Anthropocene epoch. And yet, his paintings have an aura of hope – not necessarily for humans but for the greater natural world that currently begs for a chance

Meet the Artists:

 

 

Artwork by Sibel Kocabaşi

 

SIBEL KOCABASI 

 “Although the subject is weighty and cruel, I decided that the art should be thoughtful and contemplative.  In Istanbul, I studied manuscript illumination, (in Turkish ‘Tezhip’ which means “painting with gold”).  I also studied traditional rug design and weaving. The combination of all of those studies together have shaped my mind and my skills today. In this particular project, I wanted to emphasize the idea of the contrast between the beautifully detailed handmade rugs, and the gold disposable emergency blankets which were given to the refuges when they arrived in Europe. Gold has many meanings in different cultures (predominantly as a signifier of wealth). The old rug has its own story, its own journey.  Nomadic cultures use rugs as shelters, the rugs are handmade, contain emotional and sentimental symbolisms to the users; in contrast, the gold emergency blankets are disposable, lightweight and mass-produced but yet, they perform the same function of sheltering the itinerants”.   

 

 

DIANE ARRIETA 

“I feel the types of art being shown today has shifted a bit. I see a return to more social, message based works. Olafur Eliasson stated,  “I believe that one of the major responsibilities of artists – and the idea that artists have responsibilities may come as a surprise to some – is to help people not only get to know and understand something with their minds but also to feel it emotionally and physically. By doing this, art can mitigate the numbing effect created by the glut of information we are faced with today, and motivate people to turn thinking into doing” (Eliasson, 2016).

 

Artwork by Diane Arrieta

 

 

“Regardless of shrinking budgets, all the talk of unequal representations, corporate sponsors in museums…. I can see a rise in important social content being shown. That being said, I think the tense climate of society requires a really gentle and engaging approach to these topics. I am not a fan of shock art or full blown activist in your face art. [I used to be, but things mellow with age!] It leaves very little room for equal conversations. People are tired and scared. This is the niche where my work comes in. I am not hammering my ideals in my art. There is an intricacy of my views in the beginning of making the work, but hopefully it transforms into universal ideas and topics that help move the conversation forward”. 

GIANNINA COPPIANO DWI

 
“My artistic practice of late are calls to protect and restore the environment, to heal it, to care for the earth as we care for ourselves.  To restore it we must first heal personally, as a community and globally through mutual understanding.  The awareness that it is all interconnected and that “the welfare of one is bound up in the welfare of all” (Keller) is of prime importance”.

 

 

“For this exhibition, I will be showing images from a performance I did in a Salt Lake in Texas together with objects and installation inspired from that event.  In Spanish, almost all things have gender, Salt in Spanish is La Sal, and its gender is feminine.  Metaphorically during the performance, La Sal represented the female energy of the earth and the female body in an era in which sexual harassment, rape, intimidation and abuse of power is being brought to light because women, in acts of courage, are coming forward with what has been happening to them silently all through history as part of everyday life”.  
 
 

LINDA BEHAR 

 
“I’m an artist whose interest in shapes manifests itself through a variety of media.  I seek to bring forward the contradictions between the expectations of society and an individual’s sense of self.  My focus is on women and the stark standards that have been established for a woman’s appearance.  After finding a study made by the U.S. government in 1940 to standardize the women body, I created a geometrical shape using the measurements generated by the study and presented in drawings and in three-dimensional figures”.

 

 

 

 

Artwork ( Foreground) by Linda Behar   Artwork (Background) by Giannina Coppiano Dwin

“The exploration of shape goes deeper through my work with the study of body language.  The pose is shapes, and shape is both a noun and a verb, to understand the human behavior is imperative to see it at a whole. Body language gave a visual form to identity and enhanced the visual aesthetics of communication. You are what you create, as much as you are what you perform. My goal is to create images that echo the past, confront the present, and embrace the future”.

Presentation of

Hope Kahn’s Pin-Hole Photography

“The photograph is but the bridge that provides the emotional and spiritual connection between the viewer and the art. I look for the darkness in the light, the mystery in the everyday. I spend my time blending nature and the figure into a narrative for the viewer. My mind is wandering, wondering, where my next image hides. I concede to my impulses and instincts to bring mysteries to light.”
– Hope Kahn
